Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese has apologised to his Labor colleagues after being caught out on the campaign trail saying that seminal Australian band The Saints released their hit single I’m Stranded in 1974 when it was in fact released in 1976.
”To the Australian people, I apologise for getting my dates mixed up,” said Opposition Leader Albo. ”It was a mistake, and I should’ve known better.”
”Tonight, I will go home and bone up on the history of the Australian punk scene. I pledge to come out of this a better leader and person.”
When asked if this gaffe could have the potential to cost him the election, Opposition Leader Albo said: ”Steady on champ – it’s early days yet.”
”Besides, the Australian people know my record. I have won music trivia nights all over the Inner West, from Newtown to Rozelle, to even Summer Hill.”
”How many trivia nights as Scotty-from-Marketing won? In fact, I challenge him to meet me at the Golden Barley in Marrickville any Tuesday night for 90’s music trivia!”
”We know he doesn’t hold a hose, but does he hold a pencil for trivia?”
